Never Considered

I can't say that
I ever thought he'd
Be the same as me
But I must admit that
I never considered
The possibility that
He felt nothing inside,
An animated creature
That behaves only
According to its latest
Whim, whatever it desires
At that particular moment,
With no regard for
Anyone who might be
In the vicinity.

With every shingle-lifting gust,
The unwelcome wind pummels the
Humble dwelling, Inside, a small,
Elderly woman wonders how she'll
Pay for the damage, times being
What they are. She shuffles
To the stove and turns on a burner,
Carefully setting the tea kettle on it.
Another series of indifferent blasts
Rattles the walls, nobody calls.
